• Abstract

    The High-performance concrete (HPC) is defined by the attained strength and durability that are superior to conservative techniques. The features of ordinary concrete that are achieved at certain times and locations, used to establish the standards for HPC. The use of nanotechnology in HPC is attracted significant attention globally because of its small particle sizes, filling capacities, enormous surface areas and strong macro quantum tunnel property. By adding nanotechnology to HPC, it increases the whole diameters of the cementations matrix, improves cement hydration and raises matrix density. This study provides a review of current developments in HPC and assesses the effects of different nanotechnology on HPC characteristics, to provide an in-depth understanding of the potential of nanotechnology reinforced in HPC. This review evaluates the mechanical characteristics of HPC containing compressive strength (CS) by applying nano calcium carbonate, nano silicon dioxide, nano titanium dioxide and carbon nano tubes. According to findings in this review, introducing different nanotechnology enhances HPC's mechanical properties while decreasing its flexibility. While integrating nanotechnology into HPC for the greatest possible outcomes in construction, review contributes to expand the collection of information in the area of building materials. To provide a low-impact construction material and an ecologically friendly solution, more consideration is required given to nanoparticles' antibacterial, self-cleaning, air depolluting and air-cooling properties. By increasing the reactivity of various fillers, including nanoparticles with other mineral admixtures reduces the quantity of cement needed in concrete.
